Blue Grass Army Depot (BGAD) is a government-owned,
government-operated (GOGO) Department of Defense (DoD) installation with
multiple missions and projects that ultimately serve to support the U.S. Joint
Like all Army Working Capital Fund (AWCF) military
facilities, BGAD could not operate without the support of private industry
Doing business with private industry supplies numerous
vital products and services, everything from grounds maintenance to the metals
that go into producing components for ammunition and combat vehicles.
If you are interested in learning more about “How to do
Business with BGAD,” you must first understand that BGAD has two separate
private industry business contracting routes.
If your intent is to become a BGAD vendor – someone
interested in selling goods and/or services – this is done thru what is called a
FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulation) contract. In this case,
you should review the three linked documents below to learn more about how this
1) Small Business Contracting, 2) Army Working Capital
Fund and 3) Army Online Partnering and Contracting Info.
If you are not already a government contractor, these
documents will provide a good basic introduction.
The second contracting route is a deeper, more committed
business relationship that goes well beyond the supply of goods and services.
This is called a “Public-Private Partnership” or P3.
Under this type of contract, a long-term strategic
relationship is developed that brings “bottom line” benefits to both sides – a
win-win scenario if you will. The key is to
understand that each entity has different bottom lines.
For private industry, the bottom line is always profit.
For a GOGO/AWCF installation such as BGAD, the bottom line
is NOT profit, but rather, the development of new capabilities and technologies,
the addition of new workload, the creation of new jobs – and ultimately – the
increased value the installation can bring to the Department of the Army, the
DoD, and our Warfighters.
For example: A defense
contractor, knowing the industrial capabilities on BGAD, might consider BGAD as
a subcontractor that would provide a more a secure, ready work force and
facilities that would make it more economical to partner.
this case you should review “Partnering with BGAD,” in addition to the
previously mentioned Army Working Capital Fund and Army Online Partnering and
Contracting Info documents.
